How to Apply

Admission to the B2D2K Training Program is competitive.

Of the six positions available, four are limited to US citizens or permanent residents, and some are available to international students.

To be eligible, you will need to be enrolled for a doctoral degree in one of the participating graduate programs and apply to the training program during the fall semester.

Applicants from other PSU graduate programs will be able to participate in the training without B2D2K funding.

Training and Funding

Training begins from the spring semester.

Selected trainees will be supported for a period of two years as a part of their graduate program.

The continued funding for the second year is subject to making satisfactory progress.
